Sixth Form Ofsted Inspection Report

13–14 September 2011


Students make outstanding progress in the sixth form, with no significant variation between groups. Attainment at A level is high and data on current students indicate it is likely to continue to rise. The extent to which students develop independent learning and personal skills, take on responsibilities and show leadership is striking. Retention rates from Year 12 to Year 13 are high, as is attendance. Most students progress to higher education. Much of the teaching in the sixth form is  outstanding.


Teachers have high expectations of the students and make effective use of examination criteria to enable them to reach challenging targets. Innovative elements of the curriculum include the AQA Baccalaureate and extended projects. Enrichment activities are well attended. Care, guidance and support prepare students effectively for further study and their chosen careers.


Leadership and management of the sixth form are highly effective in following up rigorous monitoring with appropriate intervention. Partnerships enhance provision and the views of students are sought regularly and acted upon.


The impact of outstanding provision and leadership and management on the high attainment of students results in the overall effectiveness of the sixth form being outstanding.
